Seven nights a week the ■Winter. Oat^ 
den and tbo Apollo (the only two pUUMi 
In Berlin where vaudeville holds the 
boards) are Jammed fo the roof — and 
the overflow from each house always 
big enough to" All another. The acts are 
all received with enthusiastic applause. 
So far as surface iodlcations go vaude- 
ville has a hold on the Berlin playgoer 
quite aa strong as in New York. Yet 
'the -paradox of having no^tnore houses 
for vaudeville than for grand opera con- 
tinues in the face of the fact that the 
exlattng demand would support iMt least 
ail^their pair .«C ''ball^

Veep more than two Berlin houses .ce^ 
Ing, so long as the rest of ths German 
circuit has to be supplied. Germany's 
live-year isolation from the rest of tbe_ . 
world has stripped her of vaudeville' 
artists almost to the same extent as it 
bas denied her white flour. With Amer- 
itan, English, French, Italian, Japanese 
and Russian performers lacking from 
German vaudeville bills, it is perhaps** 
less ■ incomprehensible that patrons of 
vaudeville In Berlin should be confined 
iigt^Itwo theatres in which this, style of

lack of vaudeville talent la the trw^n n . - 
dous growth/ of the so-caUed Kabarette 
form of show — a craze that baf swfept 
aU Germany from Hamburg to Munich. 
.In Berlin alone there are no feWer than 
twenty of these combined theatre-res- 
taurant-dance-halls. They differ from 
the American cabaret such as Churchill 
or Shanley offers New York, in that the 
entertainment ia as '•legitimate" as a 
vaudeville bill and presented in the 
flame fashion — with scene changes, pro- 
,.ii^riunmes and all the other accessories 
■iqi 'a regular variety show. The fact 
t^it. the audience is seated at tables 
iutd;:«ither dinibg X>r supping does not 
.lectte to. interfere, with the performance. 
'4%is.iliay be due, of course, to the char- .

New Haven, Sept. 30. 

"Jim's Girl," a comedy of returned 
soldier llfo written by Thomas J. Gray 
and Earl Carrol, opened at tho Hyperion 
Monday night, the local stock players 
making an excellent impression with It. 
Thia play was accepted originally for 
pCOdttction by Cohan & Harris, but re- 
laaSMB to stock because of It having a 
theme similar to that Ot VThe Five MU^

buy guaranteed the bouse about 8<00 a

. Out of the 85 attractiona playing 
Broadway at this time the theatre 
ticket agencies are holding buys for 19. 
The "buys" that were added this week 
were one of 400 seats a night for "The 
Gold Diggers," and for 30O seats a night 
for "Moohltgha'and Honeysuckle" at the 
Miller. It was rather a surprise to 
Broadway generally to learn that David 
Belasco bad. at last consented to a buy 
by the agencies fOv ttae of bis-attrac-

" i)iirlng the week Just past the cases 
of L.eo Nevrman and Joseph Cohen, both 
spisculators, came up on appeal before 
Judge Rosalsky. Both of the men had 
been arrested for an alleged violation of 
the new ordinance and convicted by Mag- 
istrate Nolan. Louis Marshall, attorney 
^^fMr'thedefendantB, asserted the ordinance 
^>^jnui unconstitutional and that the Board 
^''-^llC'iiilderinen lacked Jurisdiction to enact 
Bueh pttivlsions in _aa mnUnance. The 
Judge reserved dedsien pendtag ntaafs- 

to have been a teat 

allowed premium clear, for the purchaser 
of the seat pays the 6-cent tax on that, 
as he pays the' war tax on the box .oAw 
price, but on the excess amount. ' 

Last week the Jewish holidays . toward 
the week end held a r^ord for the prices 
asked and received for theatre tickets 
about town. . Everybody was out to go to 
the theatre, and tl2 and $15 a pair for 
• :$^t8 for the performances about town 
were common. But no one in an ofnclal. 
capacjtty seemed, to . ctue .who got the 
HMney or bow.inncii imi jaid.

and that was the cutting off of the spee-- 
iilators entirely.. He said that this quee« 
tion was one that would be taken. Up by 
the Producing Managers' Association be- 
fore the current season was ended. 

In a great measure, however, the pub- 
lic and not the speculator is to blame for 
the high prices and the violations of the 
' law. Standing in one agency Tuesday 
of thifc week several instances were wlt- 
ne.ssed where a would-be purchaser of 
scats gave orders that tickets would 
have to be secured in certain locations 
no matter what the cost.mts. Several 
like instances were wltaeawd to another 
agency, only here the agency refused to 
act In the capacity of shopping broker, 
and the buyer was fotoed to. go elae^

why should he not do it at the bof office 
' ° in preference to allowing the specs to 
raise it to f4. S5 or more without the 
manager being declared in? It seems 
evident to many the public Is willing to 
pay the box-ofllce price for a hit attrac- 
tion, whereas they mentally berate the 
theatre if obliged to give up high pcfcM 
through the ticket agencies.

Harry Leonhardt on the Coast for $5,000. 
In San Francisco the picture vras rented 
for one w^^at $1,SOO, and this brought 
a yell from the Leonhardt fiu*i4a,'wUeh. 
demanded a "kick-back." 

In the Paraunount daj^s the cost of 6p- 
.eratlng the sales department, which was 
under, the directiMKof Hiram Abrama at 
that time, dlways ran over 17-,per cent 
of - the gross. Therefore . it baa. been

Memory may recall' the presentation 
of tbe play at the Ifaslne Elliott Thea- 
tre when Its creator was still alive. At 
the time the vehicle and its commercial 
^.iluation proved an unequalled puzzle 
tp. its sponsors. For one week Its re- 
oelpts were more than the avarage, yet 
another It did not do Quite so well, and.

And in ita prese n t version it still has 
that gripping appeal; that same fasclr - 
nation for the weak yet strong Wilbur 
Emerson, who shoulders tbe resi>onsI- 
bility of all to save bis father and even 
one of his errantly yellow partners from 
tbe living hell of prison bars. 

There is a difference here, however, 
of the Wilbur £bn«raBa-.8a tataepvelei 
by Harry T. Horey.and-ma-aBaw-ataar- 
acter as played by George Nash to tbe 
original. The latter was suave, a par- 
lor-kind of flhancier. Horey's version 
is different He suggests here the finan- 
cier as a warriw, a gambler that fasci- 
nates and wins the sympathy of his 
auditors, or as in this case, of wit- 
nesses, rather than their contempt be- 
cause of cleanliness of motive. '

Sam Taylor and lAden BttUiavd: 'tts

meritorious fob. - 9o tta- artgtaal has 
been added numerous scenes, but to tbia 
case. Instead of detracting and leavtog 
absurd gaps in the action, b<Mstsr.1ip a 
succession of episodes that are ONMt 
flawless In their continuity. 

The story Is unchanged from tbe orig- 
inal and picturizes tbe four men who

maia agatast tba bigger money of the 
day. who ptay tba aane gaoNt, but ta ttM

toterest of Catherine Ames for the too 
absorbed Wilbur. She mantes, Impul- 
sively, the district attorney, and then 
regrets her choice. And her husbancT, 
described in the literature of the titles 
"as a nan of deep passions," ia Insti- 
gated by a Jealous motive to trap her

Before Judge Julius M. Mayer in the 
Federal Circuit Court yesterday, (Wed- 
nesday) the Protective Amusement 
Company, Inc., filed a. petition . for a 
restraining order against the Patbe Ex- 
change Inc; Judge Mayer directed that 
that motion be placed on the October 
calendar for argument at an early date. 

The order is to prevent the Pathe 
Company from exploiting the film "A 
Japanese Nightlhgaleu"^ which had been 
dramatized and placed In fl&o form. from 
the book of the same name written by 
Mrs. Wlnltred Babcock, undei- her noin 
de plittM of **Onoto Watanna." In the 
conq^UlBt filed Iqr the TroteeflVe Com- 
pany tlMjF'idalBi that Oib esfvjO^.

Companlni m'iuiaiaiBaiit tti IMS^aoM 
Patrick J. Casey the rights to jwodaoo' 
tho story in film form; and tat tttrn 
Casey sold It to the Protective <!om- 
pany. Early last year, the complaint 
reads, the Protective people 'earned that 

the Pathe Company had been- exploiting 
the film in various parts of the country 
and deriving a large revenue from the 
use of the picture. They ask that be- 
sides the restraining order the defen- 
dant company be required to account 
to the plaintiff for the moneys' earned 
by its use. 

The defendant corporation denies that 
the Protective Company has the sole . 
right to use the film and announce their 
intention to continue Its ezplottailont 
Tbay acknowledge that they have been 
'Waiiillliig the picture and give {ta a 
reason U)^t they purchased th«! rights 
to the same from Darcy and 'Wolfotd, 
rli^ to the produetba tirom Coaey. 
niQr. also allege that Casiv 1« a laiua- ,

Stioas forced me to the conclusion that

One of the most striking examples of 
this class of pictures — most striking be- 
' cause it Is doing tbe biggest business of 
any film In Germany today — is a five- 
reel featiure entitled "OUterent From the 
Rest." The dUTerence referred to has to 
■ do with the hero (!) of the unspeakably 
f.ti--.iBMty story— a degenerate creature who

The average release turned out by any 
1^' on<i of these three companies is equal to 
tiie best features being produced in 
America today, One super feature, 
made by Decla, and not yet completed, 
aCems to my eye a step ia advance of 
anythiifg ever filmed anywhere before. 
If the opportunity ever offers itself I am 
of the opinion that thh great D. W. 
' Griaith himself will be quick to say that 
it outdoes anything he ever managed to 
put on the screen.

Holland and the Scandinavian coun-

lean films, can never obtain a footing In 
Germany so long as the existing rule of 
subordinating everything to an exploita- 
tion of the star continues — ^because Ger-

logical, Interesting, well-constructed 
dramas, and' so long as they ieure ade- 
quately cast and directed it doesn't mat- 
.ter at all to tbem who the actors or

in Germany today eveiry demand made 
by representative American authors upon 
American-^film producers (demands that 
to date have been laughed at by the pro. 
ducers) is taken as a matter of course 
by the German producer. In the Ger- 
man film industry they don't put quota- 
tion marks around "the play's the thing." 
■They take tbe Shakespearean maxim 

To cite a concrete example that, came 
under my notice I take one of the most 
reeent nleases of the Munchner Ucht- 
apMkiiiiBt^ ,a* flve-reel drama entitled

Any of a score of authors writing for 
the pictures In Germany today receive 
a guaranteed annual income of anywhere 
between $40,000 and |IOO,000 a year. The

Camera men are counted of greater im-

There Is no lack of either actors or dl- 
. rectors for Geman film makers to choose 
from. But camera men are few. And 
aa for authors— well, the demand for 
their exclusive services makes the posi- 
tion of American film stars look like

'Whether the managers want to or not; 
it i* to their interest to do so. If the 
$2 theatre is now 12.50 and going to %t 
or 13.50, why not have the public satis- 
fied with those prices? They would 
likely be quite agreeable to paying the 
amount at the box offlce. They have 
jMild more to the specs and through the 
eztortloit became iftcensed at the spec 
and theatre as well. If the ttekets were 
on sale at the. box ofilce^ the fwa|fd* iTMlfUl^ 
go there and buy them. 

production cost before the show opened, 
through .the specs purchasing large 
blocks ot seats fcir four or eight weeks, 
paying in bulk \a admnce. It guaran- 
teed in a way a nightly sale and this

purchase tickets for Memorial Day. The 
Ms men of the country have acknowl-

its people and, therefora they are tak- 
ing the burden of subscription upon 
themselves. At the same thne the the- 
atres will ba tilled and it is hoped the 
Actors' Fund will be made safe in per- 
petuity. The committeemen In their 
talks recognized tbe fact that the Ac- 
tors' Fund in Its present condition would 
call for financial support every to of- 
ten. So they are determined to "All the

It Is educational, but of no value as such. 

The piece starts oS a new star, a Belasco 
sUr, too, Ina Claire, but the play appears to 
have been written tor Miss Howland. She ntos . 
away with it. so far away onii' Untb Taify as

alOrta of quite some range. She can make a 
part stand up, like herself, and shades her work 
without efiort. While allotted what Is known 
as "meat," Miss Howland makes the most ot it. 
MlBS Terry's good work cannot be overlooked. 
She's aootfaer chorus 'girl in the piece wltb de- 
cent ideas and^a' future husband In St ZiOatS. '

Chicago, Oct 8. 
Opening cold .after an absence of 
months from vandeville and years from 
Chicago vaudeville. Irene Franklin shot 
an (ihtirsiy new act. Her routine is 
daring, even revolutionary. Appearing 

■ In' a straight gown she got a generous

right Amf< ah' ifltMiAiiiliir^^^^i^^ by 
Barton Creen, In his nsaal straightfor- 
ward and tricitlssfl style, Irene watted 
In as a little ghetto child; as good a 
make-up characterization as her old 
Janitor's child. She sang a heart- 
touching little thing In Yiddish accent 
of a poor kid bringing a rent receipt, 
the family's most precious possession, 
to her teacher for a Christmas gift 
(Adapted from a Myra Kelly story.) 
Her intonations were, kosher save for 
an occasional slip that only brought 
back Irene Franklin without hurting 
the character. The piece de resistance 
of the musical strain was "Roslnkes 
mit Mandeln," a Jewish classic lullaby. 
The Bumbe^ dropped' just a mite at the 
end, bavliig clutched the heart mightily 
until ^en< but never sagged enough to 
prevent a hMTy band. She.ttieaoluijiCed

She aid a i^ndi girl greeting SanUhy. 
but she did It, oh,^ so differently; and 
the . song was so different, too. She 
got laugh after laugh and rounded it 
all out with a true French music hall 
dance which shone iridescent In the 
warm rays of her Individuality, her dis- 
orderly colors and her flushing magnet- 
isnpi of person. Half a dosen recalls 
after the curtain fell were her portion. 
It started her on her way across the 
Orpbeum tour with the settled fact 
that she has an entirely new act as 
strong as the best of her old ones. And 
that seemed unlikely again after the 
numy knockout blows she had landed In 
tho vaudeville ring. This young woman 
is original and has :t]|«. soul of the true 
comedienne, seasoniht: With a dash of 
quaint pathos her oommentarie/ on 
contemporary life viewed from indtil- 
gently satirlq. angles. Green gives hw. 
a backgrounl^ot dignity which she ' 
Illuminates by. qule^. jMMnt Mm

Fonnetly of Laurie and'*ronson, Joe 
Laurie is now a single turn, really a 
monologlst. although carrying a com- 
pany for a brand new idea on the vau- 
devil're stage. Speaking of his sister, 
"Bdna," his folks and downtown where 
he liyes, Mr. Laurie remarks to the au- 
Meniee'~ Ms parents are .' la the wings 
watdilng htan. This happens after he 
has been talking and singing for 12

minutes "they remain there, without 
speaking, that a Iwre percentage of the 
lay audience properly grasps the situa- 
tion. It finishes off the Laurie turn so 
differently it Is bound to esUblish him. 
Previously In the talking section, Mr. 
Laurie runs lightly along, speaking 
about almost everything, but not la the 
conventional BtyIeb;makUig one blunder 
only, tellhig of his irlrl— that If the audi- 
ence tuns him out a winner he will 
then secure engagements and make 
enough to~ nlarry the girl who is wait-

Are for some applause, it can go out 
when Mr. Laurie finds something bet- 
ter to replace it Another section that 
needn't wait so lonit Is Laurie's iencore 
speech. In falling for the "speech thing," 
Mr. Laurie turned a lomerisault It 
wastj^ two minutes, and as his Impres- ' 
sion was such when exiting with his 
"parepts," the young man should liave 
been Well content No author la an- 
nounced for the Laurie stuff, it hardly 
sounds like the same writer, the body 
of . the turn and the encore. As a sin-

Intonation and style. Jack . Korworth.

The Actors' Equity filed a protest

In view of the foregoing concessions,

At the conctuaion ot tba last act there wao' 
a conalderable reveraal of opinion, 

The trouble with the piece la that It waa 
dealgned aa a comedy and . kept constantly 
slipping into farce; therefore It Is neltbel^oiie 
or the othor, .Again tbe title discloses alto> 
gothor too much of wbat la at host a tiAck'-

tain rose and it develop * that tvto ma.rrlod

It then became a certainty that th? .last 
spaam would comprise a conventional clean- 
up, but the surprise came when In. the pro- 
cess of flnlthlng up there came; for the flrat* 
time in the play, a note ot naturalneaa and- 
fineerity tbat lifted the tatira allair waU 
beyond tbe pale ot lU hitherto l^aaallty..

only one .aojt' 'ftltagather handicapped waa 
Margaret Dale, aa a aweet. wise little wife 
who knows ber husband's weaknesa for flirta- 
tion and pretends she isn't "on." In the 
last act Lee Baker and Chrystal Heme, aa: 
man and wife of a more substantial aort, re- 
deemed tliemselves with a splendidly writteb 
and brilliantly acted reconciliation scene.
